Hi i own a sapphire 5850 and im thinking of buying the MSI 660GTX Ti power edition OC. Its cheaper than thr standard 7870 so i think its better for my euros. My question is, will it be a noicable upgrade?

Yes it will be noticeable. But how come the 660 Ti is less expensive than the 7870? It should be the same, Just wondering...

Anyway, it is going to be a good upgrade. Good Luck :) .

Your power supply is fine it recommends a 450 or better. I am running a 670 GTX on a 650 watt so you are more than ok.
